It seems like everyone loves Fall. I have to admit… it’s not my most favorite time of year. You see, I am not a fan of the cold. At all. I love the holidays and anyone who knows me knows that I go all out for Christmas (hello 6 Christmas trees, haha!), but come January-March… yikes! So while Fall isn’t bitterly cold like the dreaded January-March, there is just something about it that signals the end of my beloved Summer that always makes me just a little sad. Granted, I live in Tennessee and it was 80 degrees still last week so I really can’t complain too much.
Anyway, I have definitely been in denial about Fall’s arrival (thank you 80 degree weather, haha) but after a cold front came in this weekend it is officially undeniable. So I finally packed up my summer clothes, brought out the winter wear, and began decorating the house for Fall. On the bright side, Fall’s arrival means that the HOLIDAYS are coming!
Oreo is like me when it comes to the cold weather – he doesn’t like it! So when I pulled the space heater out this weekend he made himself comfortable right in front of it (just like every winter). Which is pretty much where he will be until April.
Every October, Christopher and a bunch of his guy friends (12 this year) go on a camping trip that they call “Porktober Fest”. They call it that because they take a whole hog to roast and that’s what they eat all weekend long. It definitely rained and hailed on them, but they had a great time despite it all. And while I did miss my sweet husband, my girlfriends (all the wives) partied together in a warm, dry house with delicious food. I’m pretty sure we got the better end of the deal.
Remember when I said that I was buying a bottle of Skinny Cinnamon Dolce? I definitely did! And now I can drink my decaf skinny cinnamon dolce latte with almond milk at home on the cheap! And for the record, I haven’t used half the syrup in 3 days… Whitney and I decided to split it since neither of us needed a huge full bottle. She was so excited when I told her that we could have it at home:
